Or apply our wallpaper. Since it is made of real paper, it allows the wall to breathe and prevents new mold from forming.
How to clean the wall before applying our wallpaperLaying wallpaper perfectly starts with the wall, so ensure it is in perfect condition. Walls should be clean, dry, and as smooth as possible. Remove old wallpaper, stains, and anything that might affect the surface, such as polish or grease.
If moisture or mold is present, you must fix the problem before laying the wallpaper. Excess humidity can affect the laying process and will not give you a beautiful finish.
For a smoother overall look, ensure the wall is uniform before you start laying. Different colors will give a different look.
Depending on the overall look you are going for, an uneven wall may show under the paper. If the wall is very uneven, it is best to shave it before laying the paper.
If you want to use a primer, check that it is precisely for paper and completely dry before laying the wallpaper. Otherwise, it will damage it.
Are you laying on drywall, unpainted plaster, or washable paint? Then making a base with a primer or this product is essential. Then you can follow our instructions.
If the wall is painted regularly, proceed normally with our instructions.
How to prepare the wall
We recommend using sandpaper to smooth out imperfections and cement plaster to fill any holes or cavities. Remove carpet from walls if present by steam or with a cloth soaked in water diluted with solvent.
